Afloat XD

The Afloat XD waterbed mattress is designed to accommodate plus-sized sleepers. As the ancient Greeks discovered, it takes more water to displace (or float) more weight. Compared to our Essential and Total models, the Afloat XD waterbed mattress supports 100 pounds more weight, providing complete flotation comfort and support up to 500 pounds of combined sleeper weight. The key feature is XD’s extra 3” depth – deeper than Essential and Total, and deeper than all of the original wood-framed (“hard sided”) waterbeds. No other waterbed does this.

Afloat XD Waterbed Sizes

Our Afloat XD waterbed mattress comes in Standard Eastern King, Dual Eastern King, Standard California King, and Dual California King sizes. An Eastern King mattress measures 75” W x 79” L, while a California King is 71” W x 83” L for those who want extra length. Either will easily support two sleepers. A Queen size option isn’t available in the Afloat XD, because a Queen mattress doesn’t hold enough water to comfortably support up to 500 lbs.

Key Features

  • The Afloat XD provides complete flotation comfort and support up to 500 pounds of combined sleeper weight.
  • XD mattress is 3" deeper to support 500 lbs combined weight
  • Oversized mattress and liner (two water mattresses and a thermal divider in Dual)
  • Solid State temperature control system with digital display (two systems in Dual)
  • Stretch-knit washable cover
  • Afloat wave suppression and support system
  • Smooth edge platform deck
  • Heavy-duty “Lockdown” foam perimeter rails
  • Energy saving insulation system
  • Metal bed frame included
  • Care kit (25’ kink-resistant hose, air extractor, fill & drain kit, mattress carrier, two 8 oz. water conditioners, fill meter, alignment pins, mattress carrier, and patch kit)
  • 20-year limited manufacturers warranty
  • FREE shipping within contiguous United States (Hawaii and Alaska require separate shipping fees)

Afloat XD Waterbed Options

Whether you choose Eastern King or California King, the Dual version gives you optimal control over your specific sleep zone. Every Afloat waterbed mattress includes a temperature control system, but the Dual versions provide isolated mattresses, each with its own temperature controls. In addition, a thermal insulator between the two mattresses means your side of the bed is uniquely yours, without affecting your partner’s comfort.

Depending on how soft or firm you prefer your mattress, you can add an optional memory foam layer for added firmness. Also, you have options on how to support your Afloat XD waterbed. You can choose our box foundation with a 7-inch bed frame, or our 16-inch tall Space Saver platform for under-bed storage.

More About Our Afloat XD Waterbed

The Afloat XD waterbed mattress, much like our Afloat Total, includes our heavy-duty “Lockdown” foam perimeter rails. These extend the foam perimeter’s lifetime so you can enjoy flotational comfort for years to come. The Afloat XD also includes our energy-saving insulation system, which improves temperature regulation while using less electricity. In our tests, the addition of our insulation reduced energy costs by over 35%. Also, the Afloat XD waterbed mattress includes our Afloat Total Care Kit, which has everything you need to install and maintain your Afloat. If you need maximum weight displacement to achieve total flotation, the Afloat XD is the right Afloat model for you.

Thanks to Afloat’s state-of-the-art temperature controls and advanced wave suppression system, the Afloat XD reimagines the classic waterbed. Because Afloat waterbeds were designed by the original inventor of the waterbed, no one comes close to our expertise! The US Patent Office agreed, awarding Mr. Hall a patent for his “reimagination” of his original waterbed.

We’re so confident that you’ll love your new Afloat XD that we offer a 100 night satisfaction guarantee. On top of that, we offer free shipping to the contiguous United States and a 20-year limited manufacturer warranty! With your best sleep to gain and nothing to lose, make the Afloat XD waterbed mattress uniquely yours today!

  • Do you offer free shipping on all orders?

    Afloat offers FREE shipping to the 48 contiguous United States (not including Alaska and Hawaii). There will be an extra charge for shipping outside this area. After you purchase an Afloat product one of our customer service representatives will contact you to provide the additional shipping costs. If you prefer to know your estimated shipping costs prior to your purchase, please contact us at; include your name, phone number, and desired ship to address.

  • What are the different bed dimensions?
    • Standard (Eastern) King = approx. 76” W x 80’ L
    • California (Western) King = approx. 72” W x 84” L
    • Queen = approx. 60” W x 80” L
  • How much do the filled beds weigh?

    A king size Afloat with the traditional foundation or the Space Saver platform and two averaged sized adults together weighs about 1800 pounds. This weight is spread over a large area. The “floor loading” or “weight per square foot” is well within building code requirements. The weight is a lot like having 8 people sitting at a dining room table. A queen weighs 15% to 20% less than a king.

  • What sheets do I need for my Afloat waterbed?

    Great news, no special sheets are required; all you need are standard sheets in the appropriate size.

  • Are the beds pet friendly?

    The biggest problem will be trying to get your dog or cat to stay off Afloat, because cats and dogs love the soft, warm surface. Assuming your cat is not a mountain lion or Bengal tiger, claws are not a problem. Just keep Afloat covered with a mattress pad, sheets, and a comforter or bedspread. Even without bed linens a properly-filled Afloat is puncture-resistant because the vinyl surface is loose…not under surface tension. Another plus: if your pet has an “accident” the Afloat stretch-knit fabric surface is removable and machine-washable, and the vinyl water mattress surface is easy to clean. With any other type of bed, a pet “accident” can be a permanent problem.

    The Best Waterbed in Existence!

    Posted by Brett Reider on Nov 18th 2022

    The Afloat is not only the best waterbed ever made - but the best bed ever made period. I don’t know why anyone would want to sleep on anything else. There are no pressure points and it is like you are sleeping on a cloud. My wife and I have never slept so well in our lives. We wake up happy and refreshed every morning. We went with the XD because we figured the more water, the better. We did not get the memory pad cover, but we have been thinking about adding it. Is it possible for it to be even more comfortable? I don’t know, because it’s perfect now. Praise to the developers of this bed, it is truly a masterpiece. We are incredibly blessed and grateful to own it. It is the absolute best (and most important) piece of furniture we own.

    A bed we BOTH can enjoy!

    Posted by Mary Compton on Apr 20th 2021

    My husband and I are bigger people and we were not able to enjoy the benefits of a waterbed until now. We both collectively weigh 490 pounds making a standard bed uncomfortable. With the new XD Afloat waterbed we both can sleep well. Just ordered ours today!
